2022 marks the 10th anniversary of Basement's era-defining sophomore full-length, Colourmeinkindness, and to celebrate, the band have announced a deluxe reissue due out October 21st from Run For Cover Records.
Today Basement have shared their updated take on "Breathe," reworking the mid-album behemoth into a cut of jangly indie that proves just how lasting and airtight the songwriting on Colourmeinkindness is.
Along with groups like Title Fight, Superheaven, and Balance and Composure, Basement helped shape the sound of punk in the 2010s, and like many releases from those bands, Colourmeinkindness could have come out today and still feel as fresh and exciting as it did a decade ago. Drawing equally from '90s alternative and classic emo, the record was instrumental in drawing a line from punk and post-hardcore to shoegaze, grunge, and more. Basement went on a lengthy hiatus soon after the album's release in 2012, only furthering the record's impact and starting the ripples that are still felt in a new generation of bands today. The album's blend of punk energy and widescreen guitar rock ambition can be heard in the DNA of countless bands and since Basement's return the band's audience has only continued to grow. Colourmeinkindness (Deluxe Anniversary Edition) offers a chance to rediscover this landmark release--and to hear it in a new way. The release features drastically different versions of Colourmeinkindness cuts, reworked or stripped back, bringing to mind the kind of new and essential takes found on classic MTV Unplugged performances from the '90s.
Last year Toledo-based rock powerhouse Citizen released their fourth full-length Life In Your Glass World via Run For Cover Records. The record pushed them into new sonic territory and earned praise from fans and critics alike (including attention from Stereogum, The FADER, Entertainment Weekly, Bandcamp Daily, NPR, SPIN Magazine, BrooklynVegan, and many more), marking another giant step forward for the always adventurous band. Today Citizen have released Life In Your Glass World (Deluxe Edition) which collects the original release along with two previously unheard b-sides and the band's Glass Mix EPs.
The two previously unreleased songs "A Passing Thing" and "I Don't Love You" continue to dive headfirst into the kind of biting, widescreen indie rock that makes Life In Your Glass Worldsuch a compelling listen. "A Passing Thing" is an uptempo burst of sharp guitars and driving drums that recalls the energy of Citizen's recent one-off single "Bash Out," while "I Don't Love You" showcases the lush arrangements and quick-changing dynamics that the band have come to excel at.
Citizen have been touring relentlessly since the release of Life In Your Glass World and they're about to hit the road again. In October the band will be doing a run of headlining North American dates with support from Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Militarie Gun, and Restraining Order. The shows include two dates in Los Angeles at The Regent (October 7th and 8th). See full itinerary below.

On his fifth full-length,Sullivan completely reinvented his recording approach, relinquishing solitary control of his typical, self-described “full-time freestyle” bedroom recording process, and heading into the producer & multi-instrumentalist Gabe Goodman's LA studio. In particular, “stained glass” is a shining showcase for steel guitarist Nick Levine (of Jodi) and drummer Nate Lich, who fleshed out arrangements across the album apart from four self-recorded and self-produced tracks.
